The JT Townsend foundation is a nonprofit where one truly sees positive results. Numerous students at our school and a good friend's daughter received equipment that truly met the person and the family's needs. I am so impressed by the JT Townsend foundation. Go JT!

A co-worker shared this foundation with me last week as i had been searching for financial assitance for my patients; babies with synostosis, who require custom molded helmets following cranial surgery. Most insurance companies do not cover these helmets and they are quite expensive. When i looked into JT's foundation i was so elated to find out that these precious lives and thier families could be helped. It is such a beautiful thing to give back and JT you are amazing. Thanks for being open to helping those in need. I pray for miracles to continue in your life. Suzanne B.

I was informed about the JT Townsend Foundation through a colleague of mine. I was working with a pt who is 16 years old and sufferd a traumatic injury that left him paralyzed. The patient was in need of a lot of resources, still is. I submitted an application for the patient to get a hospital bed through the JT Townsend Foundation and in no time received word from Judy Zitello that they wanted to help out. Within a short time Judy had found a bed through Stryker and had everything set up for this family. Additionally, JT himself went out and talked to the patient to talk to him about not allowing his injuries to limit his future. What a quick response and a fantastic impact Judy and JT made. It was wonderful working with them and I so appreciate their wilingess to help others.
